nsctl - manage running l2tpns instance
nsctl [-d] [-h host[:port]] [-t
timeout] command [arg ...]
nsctl sends commands to a running l2tpns process. It provides both
for the loading or unloading of plugins and also the management of sessions
via functions provided by those plugins.
- Enable debugging output.
- -h host[:port]
- The host running l2tpns that should receive the message. By default
the message is sent to UDP port 1702 on localhost.
- -t timeout
- Timeout in seconds to wait for a response from the server.
The first argument specifies the command to send to l2tpns . The
following commands are as defined:
- load_plugin plugin
- Load the named plugin.
- unload_plugin plugin
- Unload the named plugin.
- Each loaded plugin is queried for what commands it supports and the
synopsis for each is output.
Any other value of command (and args if any) are
sent to l2tpns as-is, to be passed to each plugin which registers a
plugin_control function in turn (in which it may be acted upon).
